    It 32-bit, unless you have a 64-bit processor, which you dont, because you would know :)

    Intel's only 64-bit processor is the Itanium. The Pentium line of CPUs are all 32-bit.

    hmmm... i don't like the processor AMD, i had bad experience... hang on pc's, frezz images, and others stuffs, but some friends (a few really) says they don't have troubles, i think the AMD takes much resources to run, because they are so slow

    I personally don't have an AMD, but i know that they are not slow, run just as fast as P4 do, although they do run a bit hotter. And a processor cant take up resources, because it creates them :)

    Well... lots of people have different experiences with different pieces of hardware. People often time form an opinion on what happens to them and not everyone else. If you had a bad experience with AMD then it is easy to assume that you may not ever want to go that route again. But, I am going to assume that your troubles were with the K6-2 line of processors (because they did have issues). There have been many new processors from AMD since. The Athlon Line and the XP line and now the Opteron chips (AMD64). They must be doing something right because they are such a close competator with Intel. :)

    I agree completely with you Un4gIvEn1 from fact i do not have a AMD since more 8 o 9 years and i don't know how runs right now, but some friends have the Athlon or AMD XP, and still have it troubles, but like wath you say they keep treating to get down Intel

    People sometimes put blame on certain components because they are unfamiliar with them. Sometimes the problem isn't the CPU, it might be the chipset on the board, or the memory... To each his own... I personally use AMD myself. Not necessarily because I believe it's better, but because the value and functionality are good. I do not despise Intel, but I would prefer not to use Intel.

    Un4gIvEn1, I am going to buy a 2500+ athlon xp, what is your opinion, does it run too hot, is it fast enough, u are an amd user, tell me

    Hope you don't mind me butting in...

    The 333Mhz bus speed allows for cooler temps and crazy overclocking. I've seen people take it to a 2700+ with stock cooling for long periods (NOT that I would recommend that :rolleyes: ). I have an 2100+, and recently have installed a couple 2800+ (same core as the 2500+) processors on friend's computers and they actually ran cooler than mine!
